Leaving just before the greatest financial/economic collapse is about to happen.
Well that escalated quickly…Speaking from in front of 10 Downing Street, UK PM David Cameron just stated that he will step down as Prime Minister, explaining that “I think the country requires fresh leadership.”
“There are times when it is right to ask the people themselves, that is what we have done,” David Cameron says.
“Let me congratulate all those who took part in the Leave campaign,” the Prime Minister says.
“The will of the British people is an instruction that must be obeyed,” Mr. Cameron says.
DAVID CAMERON’S former adviser has claimed the EU referendum is a lifeline to Britain from the “sinking ship” which is the EU.
Steve Hilton, the former director of strategy for the prime minister, also accused the Remain side of only citing experts because it suited them.
Mr Hilton has frequently criticised his former boss during the EU referendum campaign – and claimed Mr Cameron would support Brexit were he not prime minister.
He also branded some of the Remain campaign’s “scare stories” as “utterly ridiculous”.
Following the two polls overnight pointing to a significant lead for “leave” over “remain” in the Brexit vote, as we noted, cable tumbled and volatility premia spiked as Brexit odds surge to their highest yet. This pushed UK PM David Cameron into full panic mode, explaining that “we’re not scaremongering,” Cameron then said during an interview that Brexit would put a “bomb under our economy, and the worst thing is, we’d have lit the fuse ourselves.”
Vocal Brexit supporter, Boris Johnson warned today about the “triple whammy of woe” if Britain votes to remain…
The last few weeks have seen ‘Project Fear’ taken to all new levels by the UK establishment as doom-mongering over a possible Brexit conjure images of post-apocalyptic movies. UK PM Cameron and Chanceller Osborne’s latest op-ed tirade warns of 800,000 jobs lost and an “immediate year-long recession” if the Brits exercise their democratic right to vote for sovereignty over tyranny. Judging from the polls, which show Brexit odds tumbling, the fear-mongery is working, however, the markets disagree as forward volatility measures near 2016 highs.…

“Well number one I’m not stupid ok, I can tell you that right now. Just the opposite. Number two in terms of divisive, I don’t think I’m a divisive person, I’m a unifier. Unlike our president now I’m a unifier… It looks like we’re not going to have a good relationship. Who knows, I hope to have a good relationship with him but it sounds like he’s not willing to address the problem either.“

“The English populace is already getting the shitty end of the stick with Camoron, so, it will be interesting to see him suck up to Trump.
However one slimeball and one bully would never meld.”
LONDON (AP) — U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump says he may have a poor relationship with Prime Minister David Cameron in light of the British leader’s criticism of Trump’s call for all Muslims to be temporarily banned from entering the United States.
Trump’s comments, broadcast Monday on ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” made headlines in Britain, which claims a “special relationship” with America. Trump’s suggestion of a temporary Muslim ban led to a petition signed by half a million people demanding that Parliament hold a debate on whether he should be banned from the country. Lawmakers held the debate, but rejected a ban.
Although Israel is geographically located in Asia, the self-described “Jewish state” has emphasized its Europeanness whenever it has suited it to do so. It has been allowed to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest since 1973, as the Israeli Broadcasting Authority has been a member of the European Broadcasting Union since 1957. Israeli soccer clubs began playing in European competitions in 1991 and Israel became a member of UEFA in 1994. Even more importantly, in the political sphere, Tel Aviv’s recent major political step towards realizing its apparent desire of becoming a fully-fledged European state has passed under the radar of the media.
In March, a delegation from the Likud visited Strasbourg at the invitation of the European Conservatives and Reformists faction in the European Parliament. According to the Jerusalem Post, the delegation explained the Likud’s policies to a group of 15 ECR members of Parliament. The Likud reached an agreement with the ECR that enables it to become one of the ECR’s “regional members,” which allows Likud representatives to attend ECR faction meetings and influence its policies.
You know the British establishment is in full panic mode when not only do they allow President Obama to visit the nation just a month after throwing Cameron “distracted by other things” and his European neighbors under the bus over the collapse of Libya, but, despite 100 members of Parliament signing a letter telling Obama “not to interfere” with Britain’s domestic affairs, The Telegraph prints an Op-Ed in which the lame-duck president lords it over the British citizenry with a veiled threat that should they “his friends” leave Europe, the “special relationship” could be in jeopardy as “now is a time for friends and allies to stick together.”
Just a month ago, Time.com noted that almost 70 years to the day since Winston Churchill immortalized the term in his historic ‘Sinews of Peace’ address, the “special relationship” between the U.K. and U.S. is looking strained once again.

David Cameron is facing calls for urgent action against tax havens in UK overseas territories and Crown Dependencies, as Britain was revealed to be at the heart of a shadowy global network of companies used by the super-rich to hide their wealth.
As tax authorities around the world were spurred to action by the release of 11.5m documents leaked from the secretive Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca, revealing how it helped clients dodge taxes and international sanctions, UK campaigners for tax justice reacted with dismay as it emerged that half of the companies exposed were incorporated in the British Virgin Islands.
Hmmh. Interesting. Both, Boris Johnson & David Cameron are Rothschild puppets.
Update: as expected, moments ago Boris Johnson joined the Brexit vote saying “I’ve decided after a huge amount of heartache I will be advocating the UK to leave the European Union“ because he wants a better deal for the people of the country.

Yesterday, when we summarized the statements by UK politicians regarding the June 23 EU referendum, we said the one most important opinion has yet to come: that of London mayor Boris Johnson’s whose “opinion may sway the vote one way or another in four months. As the Telegraph reproted that “David Cameron is mounting a last-ditch effort to woo Boris Johnson to back his campaign to stay in the European Union, by drawing up plans for a new constitutional settlement that puts the sovereignty of British institutions beyond doubt.”
On Friday, David Cameron trumpeted a “deal” the British PM says he secured with the EU that will reduce the UK’s financial burden as it relates to refugees and other EU nations.
To be sure, the “agreement” seems more symbolic than anything. Indeed, it’s not even clear exactly what it is Cameron accomplished with negotiations in Brussels. Apparently, the UK won concessions on welfare curbs and financial regulation, and the ambiguity surrounding the agreement didn’t stop the PM from proclaiming he had secured “special status” for Britain in the EU.

“I don’t believe I’ve ever come across a more uselessly qualified man for the job….
David Cameron has a first class honours degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from the University of Oxford. He achieved 12 O-levels and three A-Levels from Eton College.
But then again, Tony Blair was a qualified Barrister & he lied and lied and lied.”
David Cameron is the prime minister of our great nation. Quite understandably, he has a lot on his mind, most of the time.
In fact, the phrase “deeply concerned” or “deeply concerning” comes up a lot in conjunction with his name in Google and other popular search engines.
Namely because he say is a lot. About Nigel Farage. About the Iraq War “witch hunt”. About tennis…

Exclusive: Theresa May agreed to ‘memorandum of understanding’ with Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef last year
The British Government signed a secret security pact with Saudi Arabia and is now attempting to prevent details of the deal from being made public.
The Home Secretary Theresa May agreed to the so-called ‘memorandum of understanding’ with her Saudi counter-part Crown Prince Muhammad bin Nayef during a visit to the Kingdom last year.
– ‘I am a passionate Zionist,’ declares Boris Johnson (Jewish News, Aug 7, 2014):
In the heat of a debate about Gaza this week, London Mayor Boris Johnson declared himself “a Zionist” on morning radio, before distancing himself from Israel’s actions, which he called “disproportionate”.
Speaking on LBC, Johnson said: “I am a passionate Zionist. I am a supporter of Israel. I believe in its existence. I’ve been on a kibbutz for heaven’s sake.”
Boris Johnson could become Foreign Secretary under plans to ensure his support for the upcoming EU In campaign.
Prime Minister David Cameron has discussed the possibility of moving Mr Johnson to the Foreign Office in the place of Philip Hammond – who is rumoured to be a Eurosceptic – after he steps down as Mayor of London next May, the Telegraph reports.
The Prime Minister says that the “short term reaction” of British people to the flood of migrants entering Europe will be to think “get me out of here” and consider voting for Britain to leave the EU
How low can a politician go? It seems David Cameron is trying his best to find out.
For those of you not paying attention to politics across the pond, UK Prime Minister David Cameron is desperately trying to secure backing for his enthusiastic push to start bombing Syria. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is proving to be a significant thorn in his side, so this is how Cameron is fighting back.
From the Guardian:
David Cameron has appealed to Conservative MPs to give him an overall parliamentary majority in favour of military action in Syria by warning them against voting alongside “Jeremy Corbyn and a bunch of terrorist sympathizers”.
“You should not be walking through the lobbies with Jeremy Corbyn and a bunch of terrorist sympathizers,” the prime minister reportedly told the committee.
MPs have snubbed a 190,000-strong petition calling for a no confidence vote in David Cameron.
The e-petition, which accuses Mr Cameron of causing “devastation for the poorest in society for the last 5 years,” took advantage of an iniative introduced by Mr Cameron in 2010 allowing members of the public to suggest motions for MPs to debate in Parliament.
